Modi-Xi Summit India Highlights 'Radicalisation', China Stresses 'Civilisational Ties'

Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in India on Friday for a summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a time of tensions over Beijing joining Pakistan in opposing India's downgrading of occupied Kashmir's autonomy and the ongoing lockdown in the disputed region. Khan's Beijing visit sparked off a series of apparently contradictory statements by the Chinese foreign ministry, where China was first seen to be favouring a bilateral resolution to Pakistan and, within 24 hours, reversing it to include United Nations resolutions. Last year, the deficit was around $53 billion, while total bilateral trade stood at $95 billion.

Modi took Xi on a personal tour of temple monuments dating back to the seventh and eighth century at Mamallapuram in southern India when regional leaders had trade ties with Chinese provinces. The Indian government confirmed following the summit that Kashmir was not discussed between Modi and Xi. "They are in the midst of an agreement, and we are awaiting the details".

China was of the view that India's concerns should be considered.

India is under increasing pressure to decide whether it will be a part of the China-backed grouping that is seeking to conclude negotiations by November. "This is the objective of the mechanism", he said. China said India should not act unilaterally on Kashmir. The two leaders also agreed to explore of establishing manufacturing partnerships. "And, I look forward to further discussions". "We are able to bring forth closer cooperation between both countries", Xi said, while adding that the discussions have been "very in-depth" and "good". Defence minister Rajnath Singh has been invited to visit China soon. The date will be decided through diplomatic channels, he said.

Both the leaders also shared their respective approaches towards national development.

Lalit Mansingh, a former Indian ambassador to the United States, said he expected an overview of bilateral relations between the two leaders and "giving instructions on how the relationship should proceed". They shared the view that the global situation is witnessing significant readjustment.

India and China fought a border war in 1962.

China has categorically stated that India's decision is "unacceptable" and should be overturned, while India has emphasised that the decision did not impact the Line of Actual Control - a loosely demarcated line that divides the two Asian giants. On this, he said, "the two countries should and certainly can embark on a bright road of friendly cooperation".
